Starting point is 00:00:00 Dungeons and Daddies is a rowdy, horny, violent podcast for grown-ups. Content warnings can be found in the description. with her trees For the vampire has been vanquished and the garden witch is pleased The daffies killed the father But Terry Jr. thought he lost. He retreated to the tower to bring him back at any cost. But the dads are close behind him, just a few floors down below. And they wonder if Ron Stamfler can get his stepson to let go. There's a dungeon full of puzzles and suggestive narrative threads.
Starting point is 00:01:19 As the players scream, I'm precious, and the DM shakes his head. Welcome to Dungeons and Daddies, not a BDSM podcast, sometimes a BDSM podcast, a podcast where we play D&D and it's about four dads flung into the forgotten realms in a quest to rescue their lost sons. My name is Freddie Wong. I play Glenn Close, a barred rock and roll Christmas cover band dad. And this week, my Glenn fact, my Glenn dad fact is this. Whenever they're on tour and they're driving the bus around,
Starting point is 00:02:06 or let's be honest here, the large Ford Econo van around and they ever pass through New Mexico, Glenn makes it a point to go out of the way to visit Roswell, home of the first alien encounter. And he's got so much like Roswell merch and shirts and stuff like that.
Starting point is 00:02:22 You know, they got like the alien sticker and stuff like that. Does he get that alien jerky? The alien jerky is something on the way to las vegas will they don't have to but you're telling me they don't have alien jerky in roswell new mexico what is alien jerky it's just on the way to vegas do you see a sign that's like a big alien it says fresh alien jerky and it's like i don't know it's a fun yeah that's that's the promise of it okay i i knew it was like that or like a sex thing. No, it's like the thing on the fucking side of the road.
Starting point is 00:02:48 It's just fun tourist traps. America's great. All right. And by the way, no, there isn't. There isn't alien fresh jerky in Roswell. That is unacceptable to me. I guess they respect aliens too much. We're not going to.
Starting point is 00:02:58 We're not going to. This is serious. Museums will not like kitsy tourist traps. They have museums with dioramas of aliens and government agents. Wasn't your dad fact last week about Roswell knows about the fact that we're going to storm area 51 baby September 20th. My name is Matt Arnold. I play Daryl Wilson,
Starting point is 00:03:14 a stay at home coach dad who's now a barbarian. I feel like I've gotten a little too complicated with my dad facts. I'm just kind of going back to basics like you know my name. So what's my favorite color? Daryl's favorite color is brown. Brown. Brown. Brown.
Starting point is 00:03:27 Yeah. It's meat, wood, good brown ale. Does he have a specific shade? Leather brown. Leather brown. He says a good cup of coffee should look like a pigskin. Just a little bit of half and half and a little bit of sugar. So he's a leather daddy.
Starting point is 00:03:40 That's what you're saying. Oh, no. Sure. You mean like Indianaones bomber jacket fedora brown yeah no leather brown is a color it's like a slightly lighter brown than flat brown next you'll probably find out his like favorite you know tv show just basic stuff by the way what everyone's favorite tv show if their dad's is 24 obviously oh my god that's so true that was my dad's favorite fucking show he watched every season that garbage ass show. My dad watches Big Bang Theory. There you go.
Starting point is 00:04:07 What is my dad? Carol loves Big Bang Theory. My dad is really into America's Got Talent. Oh. Really? Yeah. Specifically YouTube clips of America's Got Talent. It's 90% of his media consumption now.
Starting point is 00:04:19 Hi everyone, I'm Henry. Shit. We've crossed over. I just introduced myself as Henry Oak, my Touches of Daddy's character. I'm Will Campbells. I play Henry Oak, a granola munching, Birkenstock rocking, hippie nature druid dad. My fun fact about Henry this week was in fact going to be his favorite TV show. Henry's favorite TV show is The Sunrise.
Starting point is 00:04:42 What a fucking asshole. It's The Sunrise. What a a turd what an absolute nerd you know it's on every day it never gets canceled and you can just get up and watch it to get your morning going i hope it gets canceled now yeah better than a piping hot cup of coffee i'll tell you that much hello my name is beth and I play Ron Stampler, emotionally detached stepfather and rogue. My fun fact about Ron this week is that it's
Starting point is 00:05:11 a little story about how he met Samantha and he met Samantha who was looking for a new companion, so to speak, by catfishing her. Ron made a profile on the local Humane society as a schnauzer. Wait, what? And the rest is a story of love.
Starting point is 00:05:33 No, no, no, not the rest of the story. Tell us what happened after. Yada, yada, yada. Listen, Samantha was seeking, you know, she was recently widowed. Her life wasn't going great. And she just needed something else in her life, something to really love and to be loved by. And she thought that she wanted a schnauzer,
Starting point is 00:05:52 but what she realized when she found out that the schnauzer was actually a man was that she wanted a man who would act like a schnauzer. I don't understand the mechanics of how this happened. The more Daryl finds out about Ron's life, he looks at Ron's marriage and he just can't fucking understand what is wrong with Daryl.
Starting point is 00:06:13 To explain, fun fact about Beth this week is that Beth has an app on her phone called Pet Finder where literally it's like Tinder for adoptable animals. I hope it's not like Tinder for adoptable animals. And it's like Tinder for adoptable animals. I hope it's not like Tinder for adoptable animals. And it's hot as hell.
Starting point is 00:06:29 Do you want to fuck a corgi? No, I just want to look at the... That's not better. Not in a... No, just in a very wholesome... I just like... Sexy schnauzers are in your area. No, I just, like, you know, I have a lovely cat that is awful, but I love her so much.
Starting point is 00:06:53 She's my entire life. Shout out to Teddy. But, you know, I just like to look at dogs that I could have in my future. And they have, like, these little profiles on Pet Finder. And it's, like, an app. So, I feel like Ron would... So you're thinking maybe somebody, one of those dogs wouldn't be a real dog
Starting point is 00:07:09 but instead a man. I feel like right now I'm single, but my best prospects are probably on Pet Finder. Not as pets, but as men masquerading as pets. So Ron is a rescue husband. Yes. That's how she... I rescued my husband,
Starting point is 00:07:24 and somebody's like, you didn't rescue your husband. Yes. That's how she is. I rescued my husband, and somebody's like, you didn't rescue your husband. Like, you got a free husband. In a way, he rescued me. Who rescued who? I'm looking at the site. Under about house trained. What did Ron put down?
Starting point is 00:07:34 Yes, I assume. Yeah. And then also vaccinations up to date. Spayed and neutered. So wait, when she met up with Ron and realized, oh, this is a man and not a schnauzer, how did Ron play that off? What was step two for him?
Starting point is 00:07:47 The world's hardest Natty 20 charisma check. No, he said, I told you I knew how to shake. Okay, that's pretty good. That's a pretty good, holy shit. And she smiled and they got married. That's not all I know how to do. All right. I'm Anthony Burch.
Starting point is 00:08:04 I'm your daddy master. Hi, daddy master. I feel like I might have referenced this on the show before, but all this talk about people's favorite shows. Like one of the last like genuinely trying to be thoughtful things my dad ever said to me. He's not dead. Jesus.
Starting point is 00:08:17 God. We were sitting around just trying to be fucking father and son, just sitting there watching TV or whatever, and we're watching Two and a Half Men because it's his favorite goddamn show and at one point midway through ashton kutcher says something and it doesn't go over that well and he goes you know ashton kutcher makes you realize just how much charlie sheen brought to this role i think about that i'd say once every week
Starting point is 00:08:38 all right this is a heck of a beginning of this podcast. So you're actually going to do some fucking Dungeons of Dragons-ass Tower dungeon exploration. I am so looking forward to playing just normal D&D in a tower. I have my D20 in my hand. I'm ready to go. I'm ready to fight. I'm ready to swing an axe. Let's do this. When last we left you, you were in the foyer of Terry Sr.'s tower and a rift in the dimension
Starting point is 00:09:08 opened up and you found out that Terry Jr. is up at the top of the tower trying to open a door to the astral plane so he can get his father's decapitated head back. You got the kids that you rescued from the basement. You've got Peyton. The only place you haven't gone in the tower is upwards. Yeah, I want to ask the kids like like, what's in this tower? What's above us? What's ahead of us here? The little girl, Caitlin Kramadink, says, this is where the French guy lived, and he kept all of us down in that basement that you saw,
Starting point is 00:09:33 but when he was hanging out with Terry Jr., I think he had, like, a bunch of special rooms for just the two of them to hang out. Not in a gross way, but, like, in a, like, father-son bonding kind of... I cannot preface hard enough. Not in a gross way. In bonding. I cannot preface hard enough, not in a gross way, in a not entirely wholesome,
Starting point is 00:09:47 but not entirely weird sort of bonding experience. So I think that's probably what you'll find. I bet it was a game room. Terry Jr. was always like, why don't we have a game room? And I was like, life's a game, bucko. The game room is actually directly above us. Like no joke.
Starting point is 00:10:02 But what's a game room with no games? I think I say we find out, folks. Shall we forge on ahead here? I think we should proceed with all due haste, but with caution as well. That's what I recommend. All right, Peyton, you're going to take care of all the kiddos down here? Heck yeah. You guys are all a team.
Starting point is 00:10:17 Peyton's your coach. What's your team name, all you kids? Oh, man. What should a team name evoke? What's the most important thing in naming a team? Unity and strength. Well, I think that should be up to the team, don't you? Peyton was asking a question about what it name evoke? What's the most important thing in naming a team? Unity and strength. Well, I think that should be up to the team, don't you? Well, yeah, Peyton was asking a question about what it should evoke.
Starting point is 00:10:29 But you're not on the team, so maybe Peyton should ask that question to his fellow teammates. I just, you know, I think you've got to let the kids kind of come up with their own fun thing here. Hey, Peyton, do you want to hear my answer to the question? Yeah, I was asking you. Okay, cool, cool. Unity and strength is what I think.
Starting point is 00:10:43 That's kind of a long team name, though. Unity and strength is kind I think. But, you know, yeah. That's kind of a long team name, though. Unity and strength is kind of fascistic, man. I think it's got to be about having a good time. I wasn't suggesting the name is unity and strength. I was saying that it should evoke the idea. I just want to know what it evoked. It's like high-level kind of thing. You know, I respect the team should come up with their own thing.
Starting point is 00:11:01 But if you're asking for opinions from the adults, I think a good team spirit kind of thing would be like respecting each other and getting along and having a good time. Yeah, we're called the Payton's. All right, that's our team day. We're the Payton's. All right. All right. Hands in the middle. Everyone on three. Go Payton's. One, two, three.
Starting point is 00:11:17 Go Payton's. Go Payton's. Go Payton's. All the kids do it. So the kids are pretty pumped about it. The kids are like fine with it. All right. One of those like I want to see my dad. Yeah, my dad died. All right, pain. You got it down here. We're gonna go up there and we're gonna save Ron.
Starting point is 00:11:30 We're gonna save Terry Jr. Let's do this. Yep. Okay. Yep. As you go upstairs, you is an auto save point. Yeah. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:11:37 You see the fucking like hourglass sort of rotate in the corner and the like. Please do not turn off. It will corrupt your save file. Do not turn off the podcast or it will get corrupted you'll forget everything you heard about the podcast there's three
Starting point is 00:11:50 health packs and a bunch of ammo all right great you know what I think these little gamer asides are one of my favorite parts of the podcast I just want to say that it's always a
Starting point is 00:11:58 treat guys suck it's just one more way we can exclude that and that's what I really like about it. Hey, I've played some Tony Hawk in my day. All right.
Starting point is 00:12:13 You walk up the stairs and the first thing that hits your eye in this new room is a big fucking door. You absolutely, you absolute nerd. Freddie did it a half second before I could. That's a D4. Yeah. Something hit my eye and did three damage to my eye. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:12:26 Do we all roll a D4? No, I feel like Freddy alone is responsible for that one. I feel like that's his alone. Three damage. So you see a big vat of something that is brown and is your favorite color. It's the size of one of those county fair dunk tanks that
Starting point is 00:12:41 somebody would sit on top of and mock you. You see this vat of this like brown liquid that's kind of sloshing around. How viscous is this liquid? It seems like pretty thick. They got a stew going in there. It seems like poo, right? No, it doesn't smell
Starting point is 00:12:53 like anything. You have to get closer to it, but behind that, you see the stairway continuing upward, but there is a gate in front of it with a wire
Starting point is 00:13:01 leading from the vat to the gate. Now, when you say wire, where is the wire actually connecting? I'm going to roll perception to see where this wire is leading from the vat to the gate now when you say wire where's the wire actually connecting uh i'm gonna roll perception to see where this wire is actually touching the vat sure oh you could have gotten a free one out of anthony he was just gonna tell you oh well i got five now he doesn't have to say shit well so you guys can look too daryl doesn't see but uh i honestly i don't understand perception checks and dutch's dragons
Starting point is 00:13:23 i just flat out do you guys look more yeah he look more. Yeah, he's like, I look harder? Like, what does it even mean? I think it's like your base level is what you can observe, and then if you get a good one, you get a little bit of a hint. I mean, you can look at a Where's Waldo all day. But if you want to find Waldo... I feel like perception
Starting point is 00:13:43 should be used for writing. That is genuinely the best explanation I've ever heard of perception checks. I think it's more for inferring. I feel like perception should be used for like- That is genuinely the best explanation I've ever heard of perception checks. I think it's more for like inferring, like I feel like a perception check could be like, you can tell that this cable was like recently laid or something like that. Well, that's like investigation. Investigation, I get.
Starting point is 00:13:54 It's me like when I'm like, when I know that one of you guys are rolling perception, I'm like, ooh, I have to pay attention now. It's just a signal to Beth. Yeah, it's just a signal to the players to be like, this matters. Okay, so yeah, you're not going to get any additional information. I like that.
Starting point is 00:14:07 But you see that the wire is running up to the side of the vat. And on the side of the vat, so basically there's a clear glass window on the front of the vat where you can see the sloshing liquid. And on the side is a little control panel with a dial. And examining the dial, you can see that all the way to the left is a crude caricature drawing of Terry Jr. And all the way to the right is a crude caricature drawing of Terry Sr. So it's like Cheezoid.
Starting point is 00:14:32 There's only two options. It's either cheese or petrol. Yes, it's like Cheezoid. That sketch that you love so very much. A reference for no one. Anthony, can I just say that's so obvious that you went back and played all five missed games yeah this is so dry okay so the dials in the middle and on one side is terry jr and the other side is terry senior and then above that is a button and above that's
Starting point is 00:14:56 a button petrol oh my god anthony can you recap the sketch from that Mitchell and Webb look, cheese away, so that the audience at home knows what we're talking about? Yeah, so the sketch is that Matt, Will, and Freddie go, you got to see this sketch. You're not going to think it's funny, but it's going to stick with you for months, and it will slowly become the funniest thing you've ever seen. And then you watch it, and it's just David Mitchell or the other one building a robot that's supposed to delve between cheese and petrol.
Starting point is 00:15:26 And he just goes, no, that's petrol. And it's not funny. Oh, that's why it's not funny. You didn't understand it. They designed a robot to smell all things, but he only has a dial that smells either cheese or petrol. Okay, but here's a real talk. I didn't believe it when they told me. But then a couple days later, I was like, you know what?
Starting point is 00:15:49 When Cheezoid says petrol, I did get a good laugh about it. And now it haunts me every night. I can't stop thinking about it. Fucking coward. You fucking fell to peer pressure. Okay, okay, okay. So guys, what do you think this vat does? All I know is this is the worst game room I've ever seen.
Starting point is 00:16:05 This is the game room that's not even darts, man. Do you think this is like a jukebox? I think this is attainable, though, you know, if I ever get Terry Jr. back. Maybe this is like one of those smart bathtubs that Carol's always asking for, and those are the two settings. Like, you get the bathtub ready for Terry Sr. It gets it to, you know, 84 degrees or whatever he likes, and then you turn turns the other way.
Starting point is 00:16:26 It's big old whiff of this that famous last word role perception. It's up to your neck. So you'd have to like peek over a little bit. Peek over. I rolled a six. You rolled a six smells like raw meat. Oh hmm. Is this like a regenerative vat or something?
Starting point is 00:16:41 Maybe it's like smells like me. Maybe it's a tartar pit or alien jerky roll d for roll d for classy d for for a steak tartar ref. I got three for that. Thanks. Well, I got a three to I apologize for nothing to damage or you guys
Starting point is 00:16:57 roll so well when you're self emulating. I'm going to go up to that door and like take a quick look at it. See if there's any way to open the door. Okay, so on the door there is. It's a way to skip this room. Yeah, if you want to skip my puzzle. So on the door, the wires basically go into where there would be a doorknob. Okay.
Starting point is 00:17:15 But there's no lock or anything like that. There's like the sort of very small hole in the door where the two wires go in. Guys, what do you think Jack Bauer would do in a situation like this? Feels like he would cut the wire, right? I feel like we should not cut the wire. It may just trap us in this room. So if we tip this vat over, we could just get out of the way, right?
Starting point is 00:17:32 How big is the vat compared to the room? You could get out of the way. You wouldn't be guaranteed to get your feet wet or any of that shit. You could totally just toss it out. Can you see? Daryl peers in. Can you see anything inside the liquid? Why don't you roll perception? Oh, pay attention, Beth. Pay attention, Beth, There's something in there. Pay attention, Beth. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:17:46 That's a 13 plus 3. That's a 16. Okay. Daryl, what do your dilfies see? So you can see muscle tendons. Ugh. You can see a little bit of blood. You can see some veins.
Starting point is 00:18:01 But they're all like detached from one another. It's like those Halloween buffet things. It's eyes. Yeah, it's great. It's just a bunch of grapes. And then can I lightly tug on the cable that's going into the vat? Just see if it's connected to anything. Just give it a light tug.
Starting point is 00:18:13 Not that it would just yank it out. If you give it a light tug, you can tell that it is connected primarily to the console that's mounted to the vat. So the settings, is it like to Terry Jr. or Terry Sr.? You could switch it to either Terry Jrr or terry senior there's but you could switch it to either terry jr and then hit the button or you can switch it to cherry senior and hit the button is it on either one of those right now it's just in the dead center here's what i think gentlemen see back in the 1990s i had a cd-rom video game a multimedia fmv video game as i believe what the kids called it and it it was called Mist.
Starting point is 00:18:45 Wasn't FMV, but sure, Mist. Boy, oh boy. Was it just a fantastic video game full of harebrained puzzles and all sorts of crazy stuff? And this kind of reminds me that when I was playing Mist, usually what I did was I just kind of poked at stuff and just fiddled with knobs and push buttons. And then you kind of got a sense of what they did. And then it would kind of slide together. So since this is the game room, is probably the game this is some big puzzle and maybe if we get it right like a guy made a needle come out and help i hear i hear what you're saying uh henry the only thing i would say is that like this is like where he lives right so like this
Starting point is 00:19:18 room is probably for something that he likes to do not like designed specifically for like if some dads are coming to save the day. That's true. That's one of the hallmarks of the environmental storytelling in Myst was oftentimes good to figure out what was going on there. It wasn't just a puzzle. See, that's why it really set Myst apart. There were these two brothers that were trapped in books. One liked blue pages.
Starting point is 00:19:38 One liked red pages. It was very deep. They had a dad. And the red was more of a pink. That was actually, yeah, Myst is the original Dungeons and Daddies. Holy shit. All right, Henry. Well, we go ahead and i i kind of turn the dial over to uh terry jr i'm like we can press the button and see what happens i feel like we probably would rather have wait no we don't want another terry jr right ron
Starting point is 00:19:54 well i feel like we kicked the shit out of carrie jr before so listen and i flex um we could probably take him again if you know pushing the button somehow reanimates these body parts. It can't be reanimation. Well, you can do anything you set your body parts to. I flip the dial to Terry Sr. Alright.
Starting point is 00:20:15 But we don't have a bag of holding. You just said you want to press all the buttons. I push the button. You're sure? I push it. Okay. You all are level 5, right? Fuck's sake. No, because we didn't get a long rest. So you're level 4. You're sure? I push it. Okay. You all are level five, right? Fuck's sake. No, because we didn't get a long rest. So we're level four.
Starting point is 00:20:29 We're four going on five. Was this a puzzle? Was the door open? Daryl quickly like jiggles the handle, see if the door is open. No, the door is not open. Okay. So you press the button
Starting point is 00:20:37 and you can immediately hear some bubbling within the vat of brown liquid. If you're looking into the glass, you could see that the liquid itself begins to start taking form. Not only that, it starts to take multiple forms. Random goop becomes arms. Hunks of meat become hands with fingers and legs
Starting point is 00:20:53 and bipedal humanoids. And you see seven bipedal humanoids. But the thing that really catches your eye as they begin to crawl out of the vat towards you is the face. Oh, shit. I get it. The face morphs into not that of Terry Jr.
Starting point is 00:21:10 and not that of Terry Sr., but of Ron Stampler. And you hear Ron Stampler's voice coming from the Mud Men, all seven Ron Mud Men, saying, what do they say? They say something classic Ron. Okay, I get it.
Starting point is 00:21:25 This is like a video game, but the video game is how many Rons do you want to fight? And so on Terry Jr. difficulty mode, it's probably like one Ron. And on Terry Sr. mode, it's like seven Rons because he's like Blade. So this is a difficulty mode selector. So as you say that, you might want to roll initiative
Starting point is 00:21:42 because the first Ron goes, uh, uh, I don't know, Beth, what's a, what's a classic Ron thing that he would have said in front of Terry that Terry would have found irritating. I know what wrong would say,
Starting point is 00:21:51 but I can't speak for these seven evil runs. I think I got to send it back to our DM. Our, our genius of the hour, a man coming up with all the villains and good guys. It is Anthony Birch. What does Ron say? So all the meat runs go, I'm the dad that good guys. It is Anthony Birch. What does Ron say? So all the meat runs go, I'm the dad that
Starting point is 00:22:08 stepped up. I'm the dad that stepped up. And they start crawling towards you and one of them takes a swing at you. So now everybody roll initiative. I rolled a 22 initiative roll. I rolled a natural 20 for freaking, what's the point? I get to go first. So did they. Wait, I got 20 plus one though, so I got 21.
Starting point is 00:22:24 Okay, so you go first. Yes. Your initiative is now figured out. It's going to be Matt, then it's going to be all the baddies, then it's going to be Beth, Freddie, and Will. Okay. In whatever order you want for that last three. There's seven of them.
Starting point is 00:22:34 Mm-hmm. Are they all out of the vat already, or are some of them kind of climbing out? They're climbing out of the vat. Can we tip the vat over? Tip the vat, dude. Tip the vat. And put a trap in the vat.
Starting point is 00:22:42 Drown these Rons. Okay. But I could do that, because one of them is literally swinging at Ron, right? tip the bat over. Tip the bat, dude. And put it, trap him in the bat. Drown these Rons. Okay, but well, I could do that because one of them is literally swinging at Ron, right? Yeah, one sort of managed to crawl its way halfway out and then just sort of
Starting point is 00:22:51 took a swing at Ron the second he saw his face. Okay, I think in this case, Daryl sprints and tries to push Ron out of the way of the swing. Okay. And I swing my war cleaver
Starting point is 00:23:02 at the clay Ron. Okay, so we'll just say for your movement that you just put yourself in how close do they look like ron like in the in the chaos of battle is there a chance we've been mistaken ron with clay ron no because the clay from the neck down is like not great at approximating clothing so it's approximating the last thing that terry jr saw raw in which was like i don't know what does ron wear on an average day at home polo shirt polo shirt yeah it doesn't have the like do you still I don't know, what does Ron wear on an average day at home? Polo shirt. Polo shirt. Yeah, it doesn't have the like, you don't still have the doodler shirt on or any of that
Starting point is 00:23:28 stuff, do you? No, just polo shirt. Oh, you're still wearing the same thing? Okay, then yeah, it is confusing. Never mind. Well, but it would be like clay colored versus... Yeah, but it's like clay face where he can like, you know. I'm also wearing a clay color. Okay, very good. I might swing up the head. Okay. Ooh, Ward Cleaver would be good if they're enchanted, right?
Starting point is 00:23:43 Yeah, go ahead and roll an attack. Please hit. Will a four hit? Wow. No, not at all. So the Ward Cleaver sizzles through the air and just completely utterly with no chance of hitting him. Whizzes right over his head. As I miss, Daryl is incredibly upset at himself.
Starting point is 00:23:59 He goes, fucking piece of shit, Daryl. And he enters rage mode. So that way I can get some strength and help myself from dying. Against yourself? Raging against yourself? I'm pretty angry. I'm pretty angry at myself right now for missing that. Oh my god. It's so sad. All men need therapy.
Starting point is 00:24:16 Yeah, Daryl definitely needs therapy. So does Matt. For different reasons. And now all seven of them are going to go. The one that you swung at takes a swing back at you. The first bad boy hits you for nine damage. Okay, so I gain advantage on strength checks, saving throws, plus two melee damage with strength weapons,
Starting point is 00:24:41 resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage. What does resistance mean? It means that you take half damage from it so you only take uh four damage all right hey so half damage is gonna be helping yeah he was punching so that was bludgeoning yeah all right the second one is gonna try to do the same thing he misses third one critical fails accidentally punches another ron mud man in the face and does jesus christ so one of the automatons accidentally sees you it goes and then immediately punches the run right next to him and just decimates his face his fist goes all the way through the clay of that other guy's face and it just fucking goes limp and then goes completely liquid and turns back into vat juice
Starting point is 00:25:21 so now one of them is just dead just by pure bad luck. I did it. Andy, there's like a drain in the middle of the floor, right? They got to wash this guy's desk. They got a sluice pit. Yeah, you now realize that the floor is a little bit inclined toward the center of the floor where, yeah, all the juice goes and goes into a drain. That's just good civil engineering there, folks. Now I think the fourth one misses.
Starting point is 00:25:41 Jesus. Fifth one, Jesus. And the last one actually does hit you, thank Christ. The final Ron. The final Ron. The final Ron. Ron seven, the final Ron. He only does two damage to you.
Starting point is 00:25:54 Well, he did five and you have resistance, so he only does two damage. So you basically have these two Rons just trying to beat the shit out of your fucking knees while the other ones just go like, I'm Ron, I'm fucking incompetent, while they just completely manage to miss you with every single other hit they have.
Starting point is 00:26:08 That sounded a lot like Ron. Ron has the transmutation cantrip, a thaumaturgy. So Ron's version is Daddy's Home, where the enemy briefly hears the frightening voice of Ron's father. Oh, shit. Oh, that's really good.
Starting point is 00:26:22 Oh, no. So all of the Rons, including real Ron, the RR, the double R, unfortunately hear, Oh, you're Ron. You're so incompetent. That's right. You're incompetent. You're so incompetent. I'm disappointed.
Starting point is 00:26:38 Alright, why don't you roll intimidation with advantage? Does Ron self-intimidate by casting this spell? Nobody's more intimidated by Ron than Ron. Natural 20. Oh my God. So the two Ron Clay men
Starting point is 00:26:52 that were attacking Daryl, you see their fists go back so they have to hit him one more time and then they hear the voice of your father and their fists just stop and their arms go slack
Starting point is 00:27:02 and they just slowly like politely climb off of Daryl and all of them without even looking at each other without even deciding it they all just climb back into the vat and then just like slowly while maintaining eye contact with just you all slowly begin to sort of
Starting point is 00:27:16 like melt. As they begin to melt one of them extends a hand to Ron like do you want to join us because this is we know how you feel because that's how we feel. Next time buddy. All right. All of them choose to melt. Anthony, I have a very important question.
Starting point is 00:27:31 Do any of the Rons do a Terminator thumbs up? Is Ron cool enough to have watched the Terminator? Ron gives them finger guns and he winks. Good enough. So yeah, what you thought was just a bunch of clay and liquid, but then two fingers like come back out of it and do finger guns right back at you and then melt back down into the muck and then the door behind you ding opens and that definitely gets advantage now because they got finger gun back by a dad yeah oh yeah it's true you have advantage on charisma checks and stuff nice you know this is actually like another one of those video games that we got one of the boys
Starting point is 00:28:04 that was like a virtual console game is i think what they called it called zelda and in zelda they would have these rooms where you had to fight a bunch of goblins or or wizards and then the room would unlock once it was done so it is like the game room you know i think i'm starting to appreciate the design of this crazy old tower also ron are you okay you okay? That was really intense. You know, it's just a game. It's just a game. You know what, Ron? If you think about it, though, if this is where Terry's been living, like at least in one way you could think is that like he has a machine where he could like hang out with you. He spends time with you kind of and you're on his mind. Yeah, you're on his mind. Yeah, and I'm on his floor too. Yeah. And clogging up his drains.
Starting point is 00:28:45 Well, let's think about the philosophical implications of everything we just did later and press on further into this dungeon. That's a theme for this adventure, isn't it? As it walks, Daryl's kind of just like looking at the wire and kind of disappointed. Like nobody, nobody like gaff tape this thing or like kept it safe. Like it's kind of like Daryl. This looks like an OSHA hazard. Yeah, this is like I don't get just a little bit of tape, little bit of tack a little like staples on the side of the thing this thing could have been god somebody could trip over this
Starting point is 00:29:10 i like this looks like freddie's apartment when he's recording podcast i like that this magic vat needed a wire to plug into the door otherwise how you know that the door has something to do with each other i thought it'd be like oh here's a vat and here's a door that's locked for a reason i'll never Otherwise, how will you know that the bat and the door have something to do with each other? I thought it was going to be like, oh, here's a bat, and here's a door that's locked for a reason I'll never understand. And then you die of starvation in this room. Damn, Anthony's a true daddy master game designer, guys.
Starting point is 00:29:35 Take notes. Yeah, good job. Hands in the middle. That was a good first room, everybody. Let's do a hands in the middle when we win. All right. Okay. Why don't we lose, though?
Starting point is 00:29:43 Oh, gosh, you're right, Daryl. All right, hands in the middle, everybody. Doodlers. One, two, three, doodlers. One room down. Hopefully just a few more to go. So you head up again, and now you are in a very large and ornate dining room with beautiful chandeliers on the top coming from the ceiling.
Starting point is 00:30:05 Terry's must have been working up an appetite, kicking your ass, Ron. large and ornate dining room with beautiful chandeliers on the top, uh, coming from the ceiling. Terry's must've been working up an appetite, kicking your ass, Ron and a very large, long Gothic table with one chair at one end and one chair at another. And there's a very large chair with an ornate black wooden back with like fucking bats and demon stuff like carved into it. And then there's more humble, like cute,
Starting point is 00:30:21 small chair on the other end of Carved like a gamer chair. I hadn't thought about that way. But yeah, I feel like that's probably what he would have done. Yeah, it looks like a fucking razor hyper X gamer chair. But carved out of wood. Carved out of wood. How many stairs have we gone up? You've gone up two floors.
Starting point is 00:30:38 Two floors. Daryl goes to the closest chair and just sits down and puts his leg up on the chair and goes, Oh man, old football injury. This needs hurting. Okay okay so as you sit down into the chair without examining it at all this beauty in the beast ass tired uh you feel a sharp prick in the back of your neck oh shit tell me the happiest memory that daryl has of his father? Whoa, shit. Okay, the happiest memory Daryl has of his father is after his first day of peewee football. His dad wasn't there to pick him up from practice because he was at work and Daryl was sad. And when he when his mom picked him up, when he got home, Daryl's dad had rushed home and had a new football for him and a jersey that said daryl on it and said
Starting point is 00:31:25 hey you want to sorry i missed practice but we can keep practicing if you want and open the door to bring him outside cool you don't have that memory anymore so that that memory is siphoned from your mind and you feel it like leave through your neck and across the room you can see the other chair this like gray glowing fluid just goes and like spurts it out of a similar needle see the other chair, this like gray glowing fluid just goes and like spurts it out of a similar needle on the other chair. But it just sort of flaps around and all the liquid just goes on the table
Starting point is 00:31:52 and begins to evaporate. And you can see within the vapor that was the memory that you had that you no longer have. But he has it now because he just saw it, the memory. No, he saw it disappear and now he doesn't understand what it was.
Starting point is 00:32:02 Oh, fuck. Hey, Daryl, can I sit on that seat? Oh, man, it's weird this chair like i felt my knees hurting but i felt like a little prick in my neck and uh i don't really know how to explain it but i think it i think it took something from me and then it spit out do you guys see that yeah i it just looked like a bunch of gray goo and then like something about a football that was just intuitively it just kind of i felt a football when i looked at it i don't know how to explain this and mac could explain it as he's figured out the puzzle he thinks but me daryl i don't know how to explain but it feels like this chair took something from me and it feels like that chair spit it out you know that's interesting because the kids mentioned that Terry Sr., when he drank their blood, he took something else from them.
Starting point is 00:32:47 And I wonder if it's the same thing. I don't know. Maybe this is like the room where he does that kind of thing. It's definitely like this is a kid chair, and that's like a big boy chair over there. Sorry, Henry. This is a gamer chair. And that over there appears to be some kind of adult chair. How much did it hurt?
Starting point is 00:33:01 It was just emotional damage. Okay, so you don't have to take it. I'm playing it like that devastated Matt, the player player but i'm playing it since he just lost the memory i feel like daryl doesn't know it's like it's like in a doctor who when the memory's gone it's just it's just gone it's just gone so he doesn't know what happened he can't feel the hurt because he didn't he doesn't remember doesn't realize what happened i don't know guys like ron yeah you want to try something this shirt did something weird like i felt a little prick and then the guys i don't know if we should be trying unclean needles in a vampire's castle i'm just saying i'm just
Starting point is 00:33:28 saying my knee feels better too whoa interesting i'm just saying my knee feels better is there a door in this room yeah i mean there's just a staircase headed up i was literally gonna explain before you just sat in a chair but there's just like you could just go up the next flight of stairs there's nothing stopping you there's another flight of stairs at the end of the room. I'm going to go ahead and inspect the room with a perception roll to see if there's any goodies that Anthony is hiding from. I mean, there are goodies. There's a chair that gets rid of my most
Starting point is 00:33:54 precious memories. I got 23. 23? My goodness. With a 23, you can tell that there is a small button on one of the armrests of the adult chair that looks like it's connected to... You feel like it's magically connected, not with a wire. A psychic wire.
Starting point is 00:34:13 Because that's more immersive. Thank you, Anthony. I couldn't believe it before, but now I'm fully bought in. There's a button there, and with your 23, you can tell that pressing it is not going to be dangerous. That is probably fine. Hey, guys, I'm going to press this button. All right, do what you want, you can tell that pressing it is not going to be dangerous. That is probably fine. Hey, guys, I'm going to press this button. All right, do what you want, man. I'm feeling pretty good in this chair.
Starting point is 00:34:29 Okay. Not that I need a rest or anything. I feel fine. I just, you know, old football injury. Can I at least sit in the other chair? Yeah, I guess if you want to take a load off, Ron, take a load off. Just be careful about your neck, because that thing did something to his neck,
Starting point is 00:34:39 and, you know, seems like maybe a vampire thing. Okay. I'm going to sit down, and I'm going to lean forward, and I'm going to be like maybe a vampire thing. Okay. I'm going to sit down and I'm going to lean forward and I'm going to be like, pass the butter. Nice. I'm going to press this button and see what happens. I'm real curious. So I press the button.
Starting point is 00:34:55 Okay, so you press the button. And from the center of the table, a panel opens up and you see a small row of like 10 books sort of lift out along with a couple of goblets and some pretty delicious looking food. Food that looks like it was just baked or just cooked or whatever. All the books are there except for one in the middle, which is missing. And you can see that the book to the left of the open space is called Anatomy of Creatures Great and Small. And then the book to the right of the empty space is called Attack of the Goblin King.
Starting point is 00:35:23 But other than that, there's like big old turkey legs and grapes and and drinks and anthony is this are we playing by final fight rules while eating a turkey leg give me some health back find out uh i want to take a big old sniff of that don't eat the food vampire food he already did it no i'm just i'm taking a big old sniff of it oh okay oh you're gonna sniff oh yeah like a feral animal i'm gonna check and smell it before i eat it and that's a 19 perception uh with your 19 perception you can tell that it is delicious it is magically formed like it's not actually going to give you a whole lot of nutritional value because it's just basically just conjured out of like processed food yeah it's like dunkaroos it tastes like turkey but it is essentially no different than dunkaroos and that is that is canon
Starting point is 00:36:05 i'm disappointed by this yeah but it's not gonna hurt you daryl gets up and he's like i guess we should just leave this room guys well hang on i want to check out some of these neato books you know i yeah i just didn't expect that while we're in this fancy world with like swords and axes there'd be so much reading but all right i get it like yeah Let's read some books. Now, the third time I've attempted to hand you away out of this situation, you found yourself dead. What kind of book
Starting point is 00:36:29 would be between attack and anatomy? The remaining books are, you see a cookbook, you see a potion book, you see a book about making poisons, you see a book
Starting point is 00:36:38 about how to father-son bond, you see a... Ooh, let's take that one. Yeah, I think, could I just, yeah, I'm just gonna... You wanna hold that one, i think could i just yeah i'm just gonna hold that one yeah i'm gonna hold it do you open it up yeah okay so it's a book called the bond between father and son and when you open it up you see that it is rather than being a psychology book it's like
Starting point is 00:36:57 a how-to book and it basically describes the way that one can use love of one's father as a sustenance essentially that you can like vampirically suck away somebody's love uh and that that is a better form of sustenance than like blood it's basically written by and for vampires it does feel like that's probably why he was disguised i would again i believe he was disguised as terry senior and that was the way he was getting the love from Terry Jr. is to pretend to be Terry Sr. and getting all that love and staying alive for a long time. Well, if he was an emotional vampire, could I maybe be an emotional werewolf?
Starting point is 00:37:35 What does that mean? How about you just can be an emotional dad that Terry Jr. needs instead of a vampire? You don't want to be a vampire. Vampires are bad things. Well, he's saying werewolves. Yeah, but werewolves are also bad. It is hard, Ron. It is hard. I will try that, but I will also be an emotional werewolf where once a month I just howl.
Starting point is 00:37:54 You can do that. That's great. Just don't be where you're only an emotional father once a month. That's what I would think an emotional werewolf is. True, but I just want to howl sometimes you want to howl right now yeah you howl your heart out buddy okay terry i don't know if you can hear me in this tower but i love you from beneath you youton be like, what's going on? Are you okay? Yeah, we're good, Payton. Henry wipes a tear from his eye as a beautiful display of Ron's love.
Starting point is 00:38:31 I think we should press forward, gentlemen. Each room is more interesting and more intriguing than the last. Who knows what we'll find on the next level of Anthony's Dungeon. All right. Daryl stands up and cracks his needle. Let's do this thing.
Starting point is 00:38:45 As you do, you hear this. As the needle leaves your neck. This room didn't deserve. We don't need a hands in the middle for this room. Feels like we just looked at some fake food and grabbed a book. You walk up the flight of stairs to the next room. And in this room, you see another flight of stairs heading up one more level. And then you see a door.
Starting point is 00:39:04 One might say an optional door on the left with a lion's face sort of carved into it out of stone and the word open carved into its forehead. And one of the mocking bats that you heard in the foyer sits on the nose of the lion and says Oh, welcome, welcome. Remember
Starting point is 00:39:20 only open this door if you have grown tired of leaving if you have lost everything that makes you you and you wish to end it all. Otherwise, stay away from this door. Stay away! And the bat flies away. And, uh, yeah. I had some follow-up questions for that bat.
Starting point is 00:39:37 Basically, after the bat flies away, the lion's face on the door goes, Bonjour. And you see that it begins to move and like it's an animate like face in this door is this where he keeps his porn is this just the porn room no yeah guys this is just gonna be his dirty porn room with all of his like this is his porn room 100 this is where he keeps his pornos when i play uh the few video games that grant lets me play i usually just kind of i only have so much time so i just go straight through the dungeon then like maybe if i'm gonna do like a new game plus or something i might go to the optional paths you're telling me daryl wilson knows new game plus it sounds to
Starting point is 00:40:12 me daryl like you play a little bit more video games than you let on and it's okay if you play video games so you don't have to like couch it behind your son like madden i don't remember madden having a New Game Plus. FIFA. Doesn't have a New Game Plus. So are we going to open this door or what? Well, we're going to get back to that conversation. But hi, does the lion talk?
Starting point is 00:40:35 Is Mr. Lion? Oui. What do you got back there? Parlez le mot de pisse. Say that again in English. Pisse. Parlez le mot de pisse. P that again in English. Pisse. Parlez le mot de pisse. Pisse, man.
Starting point is 00:40:47 Speak a little pisse. Speak a little. Do you know English? No, no, no, no. It's the porno room. I'm telling you guys. It's the pisse and shit. And these guys, Terry's seeing your vampires into some weirdo shit.
Starting point is 00:40:59 Je parlais sur le mot français. Hey, guys. Does anyone know anybody who speaks French? Anybody know French? Like, we could call them. Ron knows Beth who took and failed French too in sophomore year of high school. But Beth playing Ron didn't know the answer right now, right? I mean, if you want to say that at some point when Beth and Ron were hanging out, that Beth gave him some very remedial French, you can.
Starting point is 00:41:26 It's up to you. But Beth, who I am right now, knows no French. Oh, well, then never mind. Then you fuck Beth. But you calling Beth would be you talking to Anthony playing Beth. Yeah. But you did just let Anthony know that you don't know French. I let Anthony know that I failed French 2,
Starting point is 00:41:47 but I did pass French 1. Okay. So you can count. Have you guys got Google Translate on your phone or something? Jeepers. No, I got Snake. That's all I got. Oh, okay. So Henry has an older iPhone, but
Starting point is 00:42:01 it does have Siri. The screen's cracked, but maybe what we can do is have... Can Siri translate? Like if I say, hey Siri... I feel like you get to roll and you get to pull your phone out and try it. Okay. I'm going to try to translate what Anthony says in French via... French?
Starting point is 00:42:20 By French. Okay. First, take out your phone, turn it on, and then roll to see if it shuts off or not. Oh no, where's he at now? You gotta get higher than a three. I got a 15. Perfect. Will is taking off his headphones
Starting point is 00:42:30 and walking across the room with his phone. Mr. Door, what is behind you? Hey Siri, translate this. Okay, what would you like to translate? Je n'ai plus pas de beer. Je n'ai qu' de beer. Je n'ai qui a bu une bière. So guys, get ready to have your minds blown. According to Siri, he just said that Jeannette who had a beer.
Starting point is 00:42:56 Wait, beer's in there? I think there's beer in there and some woman named Jeannette. Jeannette. Jeannette. Oh dear. Ron takes out his phone. Get it higher than a three twenty nice just wasting them
Starting point is 00:43:09 twenty with a twenty. It's going to stay at exactly level was you don't have to get a four now. You just three Ron is going to call his friend and his creator Beth May in Los Angeles. Wait a really quick Beth is Ron's mom right canonically. Are we just saying it's not that Beth is Ron's mom. It's that she made him.
Starting point is 00:43:26 I see. Okay. She made him who he is. Don't overthink it. Yeah. I got you. Yeah, yeah. They're more than friends, less than lovers.
Starting point is 00:43:33 Exactly. If only you knew how true it was. At least so far. Hey, what's up? Hey, Beth. It's Ron. Hey, Ron. What's going on? I know that you were quite the C student in high school, and that's better than I got.
Starting point is 00:43:52 So I was wondering if I could get a little advice about the French language. Ooh, I only know un peu of French, but yeah, sure. He said a peu. That means a little bit. That means a little bit. See, you're better than I thought. Could you translate this? Actually, let me just ask this lion door.
Starting point is 00:44:12 It's a long story. This one? Yeah, I mean, I'll just go with it. Yeah, no, that's what you do. Pretty unflappable. Yeah, I mean, I don't know. You get so nervous sometimes. Yeah, but, like, I'll roll with it.
Starting point is 00:44:23 Okay, that's good. Oh, you're so fun. Anyway, let i'll roll with it okay that's good oh you're so fun anyway let me just ask this door what to say and then i'll say into the phone for you hey mr door lion we um this is insane um what did you just say to henry and you hear bath go oh that's somebody with a horrible French accent saying, I said I can't tell you. I want to kill myself. Well, that sounds like you should open the door.
Starting point is 00:44:55 Yeah, you're ready to go through the door. All right, Henry. All right, Henry's had quite enough of this. The door sees how frustrated you all are getting, and it says, You hear Beth say, for this the door sees how frustrated you all are getting and it says you hear beth say so means i need so what does mot de passe mean i don't know they didn't teach me that in french one dust like a dust hey uh can i talk to beth yeah please do i grab the phone hey beth i don't
Starting point is 00:45:20 really know you but you this is uh hey this is dary is Daryl. Daryl Wilson. Nice to meet you. Hey, I guess nice to meet you. Yeah, sorry. We're just... You do have a computer in front of you, right? Can you just quickly check that for us on Google Translator or something? Sure, yeah. Canonically, Beth's Firefox is accidentally set to search Yahoo. All right, I'm going to go into Yahoo and see if I can...
Starting point is 00:45:42 Wait, is there Yahoo Translate? No, no. There's Bing Microsoft Translator, though. All right, I Googled to go on to Yahoo and see if I can. Wait, is there Yahoo Translate? No, no, there's Bing Microsoft Translator, though. All right, I Googled Bing Microsoft Translator. You Googled Bing. That's very good. So, yeah, this works. So, Beth goes like, yeah, you know how much I love to use Bing? Me, too.
Starting point is 00:45:59 Me, too. So, yeah, it looks like mot de passe means password. So, I guess it was saying speak the password. Oh, hey, everybody. It needs a password. The door needs a password. I tossed the phone back to Ron. Okay.
Starting point is 00:46:11 Well, Beth, it looks like, I mean, we could chat for another half hour. I'm always happy to talk to you, my friend who is more than a friend and less than a lover. So far, wink wink. I like the way you're thinking, Ron. Yeah. I'm not really in a place where I feel like that's something I want. I know you're not. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:46:30 You don't want it and you don't need it. No, I don't. I'm enough on my own. You are. You're more than that. I just wish you so much happiness and I think that you can get through this. Whatever this is.
Starting point is 00:46:43 I absolutely can. And all my friends feel the same way about me. That's great, Beth. Anyway, have a good night. Yep. I'm going to go talk to some people who message all the other Dungeons & Daddies guys and say how much they love Beth.
Starting point is 00:46:58 This is the worst thing that's ever happened to me. Sounds great. Love you. Bye. Love you. Bye. Whoa. So, I mean, password?
Starting point is 00:47:12 Okay, so the door needs a password. And what's it say up top again? It says the word open is written on it in the forehead of the lion. What's the French word for open? So Henry says, you know what? I'll talk to my good friend siri i think she can crack this one for us hey siri what's the french word for open in french open is so as the phone says that the line goes multi pass except day and it's its mouth opens it gets
Starting point is 00:47:40 wider and wider and wider until eventually it's the size of like a full like doorway um and you can see beyond it into the next room and in the next room behind it is a pressure plate in front of a door we faced one of these before didn't we we saw a little pressure plate action pressure plate so first of all hey great teamwork everyone getting that door open yeah that's the technology obviating any puzzle that a dungeon master can throw at us. Rhonda Beth ladies helped us twice now. She has.
Starting point is 00:48:09 It's pretty cool. Yeah. Should we check out? I got an idea. We could like grab some of the books from downstairs and throw them
Starting point is 00:48:14 on the pressure plate. Good idea. Good idea. Good idea. I should have seen that coming. We go grab all the books and then a turkey leg
Starting point is 00:48:21 for just in case it needs like capacitive touch. So so so when you want to do it? Freddie warms up the turkey leg. So Glenn, you want to toss the books on one at a time from a safe distance? Yeah. Let's do the old tossing books onto a pressure plate trick that we've done in the past.
Starting point is 00:48:38 Okay. You, you, I mean, yeah, you, as you enter the room, you see like, oh, there's a hole in the door that like is pointed at like where you might stand on the pressure plate. And then you throw a book on the pressure plate and the door just opens. There's a mocking bat in that room that before it can even finish what it's saying because you just throw the book on it. It goes like, don't step on the pressure plate. This is a puzzle. Am I telling the truth or not?
Starting point is 00:48:57 Who knows? And then you throw a book on it and the door just opens. And then behind it is another, is an almost identical room with another pressure plate, and the bat says, ooh, do step on the pressure plate with this one. Am I lying?
Starting point is 00:49:12 Don't tell me the truth. Who knows? Glenn throws a few more books on there. Well, the first one said don't do it. Fuck it. It could be a double bluff. Whatever. I don't like to overthink this sort of stuff.
Starting point is 00:49:21 I'm going to chuck some books on it. Ron leads forward toward the pressure plate and says, everyone some books on it. Ron leads forward toward the pressure plate and says, everyone's counting on you. There's some extra pressure on there. So the statement of pressure and the book land on it
Starting point is 00:49:36 and the door just opens again. I wonder which one of it did that. And then behind that, there's a third room. And this one, the bat says like, who knows what to do with this one? Who knows? It could be anything. Ron leans forward and says, should we get married?
Starting point is 00:49:58 Where is this going between us? Hey, pressure plate, what are we? I'll just chuck another book on it. The door just opens. And then you see this final room where there is a book surrounded by a ring of fire. Well, okay. Yeah, on the ground you see some porn.
Starting point is 00:50:16 I knew it, guys. I knew it. It's clearly not the focus of the room, though. Wait, is it vampire porn? Yeah. It's just people consensually biting each other. Vampire porn is probably just like a lot of photos
Starting point is 00:50:28 from the Red Cross like giving blood and stuff. It's like people lying there and like getting their blood drawn. Yeah, it's people donating blood. It's like somebody with a running nose. It's an angel comic book.
Starting point is 00:50:36 Yeah, it's just angels. It's just pictures of David Boreanaz. So yeah, in the center of the room there is a little podium with a book on it that's surrounded
Starting point is 00:50:43 by a ring of fire and a mocking bat in this room says uh remember this is only if you wish to commit suicide you will finally know the secrets of how to kill a vampire this entire room was constructed before anthony thought you would kill the boss before entering the town's the first place whoops we already learned how to kill a vampire everybody yeah. Yeah, I would be pretty impressed if it said put a bag over its head and cut the bag.
Starting point is 00:51:08 If you guys don't mind, though, we could probably take a few extra seconds to kind of destroy some of the smut and I start picking up some.
Starting point is 00:51:18 I pick up a handful of the magazine. I toss them in the fire. All right. All right. I just keep doing that until people
Starting point is 00:51:23 stop me. Ron saves one Red Cross flyer. While Daryl's doing it, he slips one of the magazines. Roll side of hand. Come on, David Blaine.
Starting point is 00:51:33 Show us what you got. I got a 14. Can I roll an opposing perception check? Yeah, everybody roll opposing perception. Were people watching me as I was picking up the...
Starting point is 00:51:39 You're the only person doing anything in the room. I guess that would be a passive perception, wouldn't it? Yeah. Yeah. Okay, so what's your
Starting point is 00:51:44 passive perceptions, everybody? I have a 20 passive perception. Oh, well, then you definitely noticed. I got room. I guess that would be a passive perception, wouldn't it? Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So what's your passive perceptions? Everybody I have a 20 passive perception. Well, then you definitely notice I got 11. I didn't see shit of 13. So only Henry Oak saw it and I let it go. Do I do you like no? Okay, you know, I don't even know that you look at me. You know that he knows I want
Starting point is 00:51:59 to counter passive perception check. You know that you know that he knows D&D is really great. Guys, Daryl takes a step away and then he feels guilty and he takes out his pocket and throws in the fire. Wow, that was a lot. Do we know that he threw in the fire? I think we should take this book, guys.
Starting point is 00:52:20 I'm not going to lie. There might be some interesting vampire facts in there. I didn't take any book. Oh, yeah. No, I meant the book in the fire, not the porn that you destroyed. Oh, okay. Yeah. Sure. Let's take the book. Yeah. Okay. So as you reach toward the book, you can tell that it'll hurt a
Starting point is 00:52:33 little bit. If you take it, you'll take a D4 of damage. If you throw one of the other books onto it, like try and knock it off like a high impact Indiana Jones or play from the carnival game like a like a hey, I play a little ultimate in college guys. I bet you I got this one. Yeah, go for it Glenn baby.
Starting point is 00:52:50 That's a natural 20 dice are loaded Matt. Check that dice. I'm not touching it. Take a look Matt. I trust him. I don't want to get up me. All right, so you throw a fucking potion how to book perfectly and like it right through the ring of fire
Starting point is 00:53:06 and hits it right out of the ring of fire perfectly and takes its original spot. If there were any pressure traps, which there were, they don't trigger. Nothing triggers. And yeah, you now have a book that teaches you how to kill vampires yeah see guys who said the ultimate frizzy would ever pay off nobody i'll add that to the collection of disc man nice throw i put out i put out for a fist pound i dab that fist with my fist let's add to
Starting point is 00:53:39 our book collection and let's let's move on okay so uh you have in another room and uh you can see that again at the end of the room there's another stairway if you want to just skip this room and you can see some daylight streaking in through the top you can tell that whatever the next room is that's gonna be the last room in this tower and in this room you see that this is a bedroom it's got nice soft carpeting really soft tasteful lighting on like the candlelight and shit like that and there's a small bed at one end of the room and at the other end of the room, a pretty large coffin.
Starting point is 00:54:09 Daryl sits down in the bed. His knees really hurt me. Ron sits down in the coffin. As you sit down in the bed, it's just comfy. It seems like a normal ass bed. Nothing special about it. As you sit down in the coffin, you immediately smell something really rank. Why don't you immediately smell something really rank.
Starting point is 00:54:25 Why don't you roll perception? A two. All right. You just smell something really bad. Oh, Ron. It wasn't me. I'm going to take a closer look at this coffin, gentlemen. Why don't you roll perception or investigation?
Starting point is 00:54:40 Six plus five, 11. With 11, you can feel a slight draft coming from, uh, the coffin, the coffin. Yeah, there's something up with this coffin. It's like windy and stinky. I think there's like a magical fart trapped in this. I take a look at the room and I'm like, wait a minute. There's nowhere for this guy to poop. We've gone through all the floors of this damn castle and there hasn't been a single
Starting point is 00:55:05 bathroom. Did you guys see a bathroom in there? You think he poops in this coffin? I don't know. Probably not the bed, right? That's not the bed. The coffin's the only... I bet you he poops in there. What about that poop-colored, you know, the liquid? Yeah. That's where he keeps his rons.
Starting point is 00:55:22 Oh. But, I mean, it does seem like the sort of guy that would... Ron and poop? What's the difference? Yeah. That's where he keeps his Rons. Oh. But I mean, it does seem like the sort of guy that would- Ron and poop? What's the difference? Yeah. I'm gonna, I open the coffin lid. Okay, so the coffin is empty completely. He flushed recently.
Starting point is 00:55:34 And you notice that the smell doesn't get any stronger when you open the coffin. Can I do another perception roll? Yeah, sure. Okay. Why not? 18. Okay, with an 18.
Starting point is 00:55:43 So the coffin is on the... I probably should have mentioned earlier. The coffin is on the ground. It's not like a standing up, like walkout vampire Dracula coffin. It's just laying on the ground. And with an 18, you can feel the draft is coming from beneath the coffin.
Starting point is 00:55:57 Oh, guys, help me move this coffin. All right, let's push this coffin. But be careful. Stay on the edges of the coffin because there could be like a booby trap underneath this thing, and I don't want anyone falling into it. So stay on the opposite. Okay, Glenn and Ron, you take that end of the coffin.
Starting point is 00:56:12 Me and Daryl are going to take this end of the coffin. On three, lift with your legs. Wait, I want the other end of the coffin. Okay, you can take the other end of the coffin. Lift with your knees and not with your back. Lift with your back in a jerking, twisting motion. I'll lift with my back. Thank you very back in a jerking, twisting motion. I'll lift with my back. Thank you very much.
Starting point is 00:56:26 My knees are really killing me. I get in perfect squat position. This man's carried a lot of amps in his day, I can tell. Listen, guys, as a man on the road, you just throw your back out once, it'll screw up your whole Christmas tour, guys. You got to lift with your legs. Not with your knees.
Starting point is 00:56:39 You'll lift with your knees. All right, Daryl and Ron roll constitution. And I got a four plus one, so that's five. I got plus three on constitution, and I rolled a 19, so 22. Oh, wow. Okay, so your back is ironclad, apparently. Beth, you take a D4 of damage for throwing out your back. Two.
Starting point is 00:56:59 Okay. What does Ron's back hurt dad sound like? Daryl nods. Sorry, buddy. Okay, so you all successfully move the coffin aside and underneath the coffin. You see that there is basically a little alcove that's been dug out and within the alcove is the corpse that you can immediately recognize Ron from pictures that Samantha told you the body of Terry senior. It is human. It is not as decomposed as it probably should be given how long you know he's been dead, but you can immediately recognize
Starting point is 00:57:29 that this is the human corpse of of Terry senior. God, that's so scary. Gonna give me a heart attack, man. I am so glad I did not poop in this coffin. We're not dead and we didn't kill Terry senior. I feel like this has been a win. This is a win overall everyone. Yep, I'm going to spit ball something and this is sometimes as for dad adventures in another realm. We're trying to rescue their sons. You need a safe space to pitch something
Starting point is 00:57:56 crazy to talk about something that could be weird, but I just got to get it out there just to sanity check. It seems to me if we could convince Terry's junior that his real dad actually is dead, then maybe some of this emotional trauma would go away. Unfortunately, it does seem like
Starting point is 00:58:12 the only way to convince him that his dad is dead would be to show him his dead dad. Yeah. Or what if we did some sort of skinwalker routine? No. No. No. Ron. Anyways, with this body here, should we say a few words or something?
Starting point is 00:58:28 I think we should. Ron, would you like to do that? Sure. Dear Terry Sr., the real Terry Sr., who is not a vampire, but is still dead. I like your wife,
Starting point is 00:58:42 your ex-wife very much, and your ex-son very much too you were very lucky to have them and um I guess they were lucky to have you but I I just listen bud you're dead and I'm
Starting point is 00:58:58 alive so um in conclusion I win uh rest your soul laughter laughter that was great Ron In conclusion, I win a red thistle. That was great, Ron. Thanks. I have an idea.
Starting point is 00:59:17 Is it just to do the reasonable thing and bring Terry Jr. down here and talk through it? Yeah, so here's what I think. I think we have a coffin. You know, when one of my beautiful boys, Larkin Sparrow, when their grandma, Grandma Binbin died. It's a long story. It's very cute, but that's what they called her. One of the things that helped them get closure is when we went to the funeral and they had the body and the casket. And that's a way that people can kind of can kind of move on. So we take Terry Jr. down here, show him the casket. And he's like, oh, I don't believe that.
Starting point is 00:59:50 I'm still mad at you, Ron. But then we do a pop goes the weasel. And inside is Terry Sr.'s body. And he's like, you were right. You were right all along. I love you and I appreciate you. And I'm glad that you're my stepdad. That's halfway there. I just don't feel like we need
Starting point is 01:00:08 to surprise him. I feel like you kind of want to lead. You want him to kind of go at his own pace with it because this is going to be very hard for him. Ron, this is going to be, you're going to need to step up more than you've ever stepped up before. Sidebar, how fucked up does this corpse look?
Starting point is 01:00:24 It's definitely fucked up enough that it is recognizable as terry senior so it would prove your point but it would also this isn't like a oh they made it all nice for the no this is definitely not going to uh it will probably exacerbate his mental issues but just taking a look at the decomposed corpse here i don't think anyone especially not this corpse's son would ever want to see this guy this look i know this is uncomfortable but death is an uncomfortable thing like he lost his his father he doesn't believe his father's dead it's going to be rough too he's going to be reliving this but he's doing that anyways and if seeing the corpse is going to be the only way that this kid can accept it
Starting point is 01:00:59 that's going to be look these these things happen dog this corpse is so mangled yeah it's it's it's a it's a dead body it's not gonna be great you know what he's not that's not that's an image that he's not gonna be able to forget man you can't do that dude that's so uncool do you think that maybe it might be a little better than the image of us decapitating a healthy live one it's too late for that one yeah so because terry has taken such emotional trauma over the last couple sessions, this conversation with him is going to be kind of like a persuasion boss fight. So rather than just
Starting point is 01:01:31 rolling once, you're going to have to see if you can get a certain number of victories of persuasion before you get a certain number of losses. And some things you'll do will give you advantage and some things will give you disadvantage. So you can go in with multiple strategies you want to. It doesn't have to be one it's not going to be a straight when you lose but um yeah some things will definitely do more like emotionally he has
Starting point is 01:01:51 like emotional hp and emotional like progress in terms of getting him onto your side okay first of all i think we should move the body from the pit into the coffin or the bed but good on you for thinking, Ron, you know, to how about how to make it better. So I think we move the body into the coffin. I think we go up there
Starting point is 01:02:11 and I think we have an honest put the lime in the cup. I think we go up there and we just have to have a talk with this young man. No, we don't move it. Of course we don't move it.
Starting point is 01:02:21 We leave this as it is. We need to tell him what this guy and you're gonna have to be ready for him to want to look when I found out that my father died the first thing I want to do is see his body so you're just going to be ready for him
Starting point is 01:02:33 to want to see this corpse it's not a decision for us ultimately everybody sometimes a boy just wants to see a corpse that's not what he wants to see it may be what he needs to see Ron okay and you're sure that we shouldn't put the body in a place that's a little bit more respectful and less traumatic than being in the hole we found him in no because the whole point here is we need to get him away
Starting point is 01:02:56 from whatever this other terry vampire guy did he's been lying to him this guy's been lying to him saying that he's his dad we need to show how awful he is here but when we can't again touch a crime scene um guys well maybe knowing that it will be really hard for terry to see this like really messed up body maybe i'm not stepping up to convince him that it's real but i to step up to just be there for him after he sees it. Because it's pretty fucked up and I might need to talk to somebody too. If there's a way that he will believe it without having to see the corpse. That's ideal. Again, we can bring him down here and explain what's happened and hopefully he'll not want to see it.
Starting point is 01:03:41 That feels like a last resort. The corpse is a last resort. But if he wants to see it, we can't be pressuring him not to see it. That feels like a last resort. The corpse is a last resort. But if he wants to see it, we can't be pressuring him not to see it. He's going to, it is his father, it is his right to look at it if he wants to. And if that's the only thing that's going to get him past this delusion and the lies that he's been told,
Starting point is 01:03:55 then that's what it's going to be. And it's going to be hard to, you're going to have to be there for him, Ron, after he sees it. I understand all of that. I'm just, my only thing is, do we want to put the corpse in the coffin just so that it's not?
Starting point is 01:04:04 I mean, it's one thing to see your parent dead it then you know it's another thing to have to see them dead in the context of the crime scene that you found them in ron what do you want to do because it's your play you're the quarterback ron reaches for the body oh boy uh henry goes to help ron with the body hey there buddy is like my fingerprints are not touching this my fingerprints are nowhere near here hey there buddy let's straighten out this mummified shirt of yours there you look much better and then ron tries to put him into the coffin i'm gonna help ron put him in he's light enough that it is no problem you definitely you just put him in the coffin easily i'm heavier than this guy by the way i think i look a little bit better too. Let's see. All right,
Starting point is 01:04:46 but we should close the coffin before we go upstairs. I'm going to put that on the table. Just also remember that the last thing he saw in this coffin was a guy that looked just like Terry Senior, but hey, you know, don't listen to Daryl's all right. All right. Well, you put in the coffin. I see what
Starting point is 01:05:01 I see. I see your point, but then we I mean, I'm what shit. I see what I see your point. But then we, I mean, I'm genuinely at a loss here. It's Ron. It's your call. Ron wants to do it this way. We're going to do Ron's way. Um,
Starting point is 01:05:13 does anybody have sunglasses that we can put on or something? Daryl, Daryl has sunglasses. Daryl has sunglasses. Daryl, can I have your sunglasses? No, Ron. We're not,
Starting point is 01:05:22 we're not putting sunglasses on the course. Should we go talk to, should we go talk to Terry Jr.? I think we should go talk to Terry Jr. All right. Bye, Terry Sr. We'll see you soon. We're going to cover the coffin, though, right?
Starting point is 01:05:34 Yeah, we put the clothes. Yeah, that's why I'm saying goodbye to him. I take the business card that says, you're welcome, and I put it in his front pocket. No, no, you shouldn't do that. I'm going to grab it. Don't put the business card in the corpse.
Starting point is 01:05:46 Like you're a serial killer and you're leaving your calling card there, Ron. I take more of my business cards out. All right, Daryl's exacerbated. He just lays down the bed. He's like, I'm trying to help. You know what? You guys do what you need to do.
Starting point is 01:06:03 I lean toward the corpse and I say, hey hey terry help me be a good father i mean stepfather because i gotta step up pretty hard right now all right are you gonna head upstairs yeah okay so you head upstairs and you are at the top of the tower you see a balcony basically that terry jr is standing on inside a sort of runic circle with pentagram and a bunch of weird sigils and shit wind is completely localized to him blowing his hair back or whatever and he's reading from a book that's called the astral plane and you and he's like he's like trying to like do sigils in the air with his fucking fingers and shit like that and next to him off the balcony you see a little toilet seat. That's where they shit.
Starting point is 01:06:50 Oh my God. But the thing that grabs your eye the most is Terry Jr. trying to cast some spells to get to the astral plane. Oh, that's really bad. Hey, hey, Terry. It's me, Ron. Just, what you doing there, kiddo? So are you walking toward him
Starting point is 01:07:06 or are you just saying it from a distance? I'm saying it from a distance. So he looks up at you and he just goes, and grunts and just looks back and starts flipping through the book even more hurriedly. Like, come on, come on, come on. I start walking toward him. Hey, if you need any tutoring or anything,
Starting point is 01:07:20 that is something I learned to do. So as you get closer, you see that the runic sigils at his feet light up and you're stopped by an invisible sort of wall of force. Wow, that's some algebra I never passed. So maybe I can't tutor you on that. Anyways, can I get past this force field, please, Terry? He tries to squint and like squeeze your voice
Starting point is 01:07:42 out of his head, but he can't. And he just goes, no, Ron, please for the last time, just leave. But Terry, I'm here. Yeah.
Starting point is 01:07:51 That's the problem. That's always been the problem. Are you not getting that? I get it just fine, but I, I love you too much to leave. That does a little bit of a damage to his resolve. That's good.
Starting point is 01:08:06 So you guys, I appreciate that, but I'm, I, I. You do? I know what I need, and what I need is not you. What I need I had, and then he left, and then he came back,
Starting point is 01:08:16 and then you cut off his head, so I'm gonna go find his head, and I'm gonna have my dad back. Well, it sounds like you still don't have what you need, and I don't think you're gonna find what you need in the astral plane either. Well, this book says otherwise. Well, what sounds like you still don't have what you need, and I don't think you're going to find what you need in the astral plane either. Well, this book says otherwise. Well, what does it say?
Starting point is 01:08:29 I'm not a tutor. It says all I got to do is go to the astral plane. If I can just finish this spell, which would be a lot easier if you were around, I just got to concentrate, then I can go to the astral plane, and once you're there, time doesn't move in the same way, so I could just be with him for all time, and it would be great. Terry, can I ask you something? time doesn't move in the same way. So I could just be with him for, for all time. And it would be great. Terry,
Starting point is 01:08:46 can I ask you something? Um, what, what did you like about your dad? What did I like about him? Jesus Christ. He was my dad. He wasn't, he wasn't trying really hard to just sort of be this guy that I needed to
Starting point is 01:08:59 respect. He was just himself and he was, he was caring and he was funny and he was nice. And my mom liked him and he was a great guy. And he always read me fucking stories. I don't know what you want me to tell you. And he was alive, right? Yes.
Starting point is 01:09:11 That was probably my favorite thing about him. So you did some damage to his. He's taken the opposite damage. So now he's less likely to go with you. So he's got he's got wins and losses. Basically, you have one win and one loss in this conversation. What if I told you you're not going to find him in the astral plane? Because I know where he is.
Starting point is 01:09:27 The wind around his like that's blowing his hair around like stops. And he goes, what do you mean you know where he is? I know he's in the astral plane. That's where you sent him. That's where you sent his head. He's in this tower. I mean, I got to, you know, spoiler alert you. It's not, you know, necessarily a better option.
Starting point is 01:09:42 But I know where he is and you can talk to him. He's just not going to talk back. What the fuck does that mean? I mean... Ron, talk about how the other guy was a fake. I mean, that other guy was a phony, like even phonier than what stepfather is considered. You know, like everybody's like...
Starting point is 01:10:02 What other guy? You know, you're... The vampire? The vampire. All vampire. Alright, roll let's say persuasion with advantage. 18. Oh shit. Cancels another win. So you only need two more of those to get
Starting point is 01:10:15 him on your side. He goes, what vampire? What vampire? What the fuck are you talking about? Well... Ron, the kids downstairs. Terry must have seen these kids. Hey, Terry, did you hang out with any other cool kids while you were here? And by cool, I mean like kind of pasty and pale and vampire? Oh, those are the kids. Yeah, those kids are vampires.
Starting point is 01:10:33 Yeah, those kids were vampires. But there's a daddy vampire. No, Terry Sr., my dad, was keeping those vampire kids in the dungeon safe so that he didn't have to kill them. Then how come he was so pasty and vampire-y? I don't know. That's just sort of his thing. I don't think it was his thing.
Starting point is 01:10:48 He went through this portal into this fucking weird world. It does a lot of weird shit to a lot of us. Listen, I know your mother very well and intimately, and she likes- Oh, God, don't say that. That's one loss. You got two losses and two wins left. I'm just saying she likes a hot-blooded man. Another loss.
Starting point is 01:11:08 You got one more loss. Guys, help me out. Hey, hey, Terry. What? So you're saying the guy you thought was your dad was not a vampire. Correct. Well, if he wasn't a vampire, then those kids downstairs would probably still be vampires too, right?
Starting point is 01:11:22 Because they had nothing to do with him. And look at this. The sky has changed. All the darkness around here has fallen away because that guy was not your father. It was an imposter. He was a vampire pretending to be your father. I'm going to turn around, by the way,
Starting point is 01:11:35 and sprint downstairs because I need to grab one of these kids to prove that and have them maybe speak to it. So I'm going to... Okay, that's really far. I'll be right back. Well, yeah, I'll be a while. Terry Jr., based off what you said, sounds like your dad was a great guy yeah he was an amazing guy it does he doesn't sound like the sort of guy that would have come over here and try to kill us he doesn't sound
Starting point is 01:11:53 like the sort of guy that would put kids in cages even if there were vampires don't you think he acted a lot differently than the dad that you you mentioned the the dad that you're talking about okay so as you're saying that glenn comes back with the kid, comes back with Caitlin Kremdynik, and she's like, yeah, I'm human again. That guy was definitely a vampire, so why don't all three of you roll persuasion with advantage? I got a 14.
Starting point is 01:12:15 25 with advantage. I got a 12. Okay. That kid helps. The kid helped. So Terry looks from each of you and the shit you're saying to the kid, you see the barrier that's separating you to begin to waver a little bit. And he sort of just drops the book. He just says,
Starting point is 01:12:31 God damn it. I always knew. I knew he wasn't my dad, but I just wanted him to be so, so badly. And I think I still do. I don't know if I care. I think I would still rather have that than what this is
Starting point is 01:12:46 than all of this. And he gestures at you and then gestures at himself. Terry, I want to tell you a quick anecdote about my father. Just to remind you, you have one win and one loss left. So if you say anything that's wrong, you're going to lose. And if you say anything that's good, you got it. My father was not a vampire. However, my father wasn't always, I wasn't always sure if he loved me. And he would take me fishing sometimes. And I always thought that if I could just catch one fish, then he would be proud of me. I never ended up catching that fish, and he never ended up being proud of me, but sometimes your family is just who loves you. And if you think that your family is gone, they're not all gone.
Starting point is 01:13:53 I still love you and I care about you and I'm sorry that you're feeling like this because I've felt like that before and it fucking sucked. Terry is looking you dead in the eyes as you say all this and then he just closes his eyes and just sort of like almost collapses onto the ground
Starting point is 01:14:14 like into a sitting position. Like he just gives up like his body is just like done trying to pretend that he's too strong for this and the magic barrier comes down and you just see his shoulders begin to heave as he starts sobbing. Can I hug him? Yeah. So you go in for a hug and he doesn't down and you just see his shoulders begin to heave as he starts sobbing. Can I hug him? Yeah. So you go in for a hug and he doesn't resist and you're holding him and he's sobbing and
